We bought our tickets which was for 24 hours. Sunny days we could enjoy the open top up stairs and the following day used the free river cruise . Worth the money.

Very practical transportation within and around London.
It covers all the routes you might think of.
You will always find a near by station.
With Oyster card, payment drops by half and it is very convenient than cash payment.
Buses are clean and convenient.
Our first visit to London and we have not utilized any bus service very much in our past but I must say we were very happy to discover London's. We purchased two Visitor Oyster Pass cards on line some months before we left for London...More

London by far has a better public transit system than New York (I grew up in the latter). Busses are clean, frequent, quick, and offer almost every route one could think of. Use them to get around efficiently and effortlessly.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
